You may have put a scratch mark on the drum. take the toner out and manually rotate the drum and see if you can find the same smudges.

It's al black horizontal lines/smudges over the printed page. How to cean this?


Black Horizontal Lines are normally caused by a Light Burnt Drum.

The drum in built into the toner cartridge for this machine so replacing the cartridge will fix the problem.

The printer is transferring ink from the top left of the paper all the way down in line with the rollers. It looks like a smudge but you can see the print. I have cleaned it, but still has the problem. Any...


Image problems on laser printers are almost always caused by the toner cartridge or the fuser. If you have already tried a new toner cartridge and that has not fixed the problem you need a new fuser. A fuser that is going bad will cause lines, smudges and ghost images. You can buy it alone or as part of the maintenance kit. www.printerworks.com is a good place for HP parts. Search by model number to see what you need.

Laser jet produces printouts that are smudged and dark


Remove the toner cartridge and use a soft cloth to wipe the photo drum clean of toner. Put it back and try again, if you still get bad prints, then you need a new toner cartridge.

BLACK SMUDGING


Hmm... This sounds like it is a toner problem. If your roller is getting too much toner then it just globs it onto the paper even though the drum is not asking for it. Are you using a new toner cartridge or a re-filled one? Is it from Brother or a 3rd party? I suggest you remove the toner cartridge and check inside the printer. Clean any spilled toner. Check the toner cartridge for leaks .. give it a good shake and see if it is leaking. If you have another toner cartridge, you can replace it to test. You may need to pint a few pages to see a change. Another test could be to print a few (2-5) "BLANK" pages. The printer should not be depositing any toner. If no smudge or the smudge stays the same, then the toner cartridge is the likely problem. If the smudge is there, but gets smaller, then clean your printer.

Good luck!

Printed pages look dirty


That black dust that fell out is the toner. When you shake a toner cartridge that shouldn't happen. It looks like you have a faulty toner cartidge and that need to be replaced! Now to make your printer prints cleanly and clearly after you replace the cartridge, you'll need to get someone to service the printer(the faulty toner cartridge more than likely spilled toner on your internal printer parts, cause the smudges). Sevicing would mainly entail, taking down the printer and removing any spilt toner! If you feel you are up to this, be cautious, because toner can be hazardous to your health if you accidentally breathe it in! hope this was helpful! regards babb
